    I've been listening to "Good Clothes" by Little Brother way too much lately, and I think it may be the first rap song (or song of any kind) to reference J. Riggings.

    Billy Joel, "Keeping the Faith."

    We wore matador boots, only Flagg Brothers had them with the Cuban heel
    Iridescent socks with the same color shirt,
    and a tight pair of chinos
    Oh, I put on my sharkskin jacket,
    you know the kind with the velvet collar
    And ditty-bop shades, oh yeah

    My first suit came from J. Riggings. It was an emergency purchase for a second interview. Wore it a year, then gave it to my dad, since my suit wardrobe was a good deal better than his. It fit him better than me, too.


    ...for a clothing song, try "Bell Bottom Blues" - Derek & the Dominoes.

    A great and extremely SF-appropriate song would be Spoon - Fitted Shirt. The singer complains about baggy shirts sold today.
